What is Blik? Posted on 03 Aug 14:29

Blik is a line of self-adhesive wall decals that were created by and for people who like to change their mind. Blik is a great alternative to Wallpaper, paint or stencils and the DIY nature of Blik let's you be the artist and create your own wall art. Within minutes, you can transform the look of a living or office space: Choose your space, plan the design you'd like to make, and literally, just peel and stick. And when you're tired of your design, say after years, a month, maybe a day – The decals are removable.

 

I know all Blik products are removable, but how long will the decals stay up?​

Blik is perfect for temporary applications but if you take care of it, it will last for years. Indoors, Blik will last 2 to 3 years easily. Do try to keep your Blik design away from direct sunlight as heat can release the adhesive and can cause the decals to peel up. Outdoors, Blik graphics will last 1 to 2 years.

What is Blik made from?

Blik is made from an ultra-thin, self adhesive matte vinyl film. Blik Re-Stil is made from a slightly thicker, self adhesive, polypropylene film.

What is the difference between the Original line of Blik wall decals and Blik Re-Stik?

All Blik products are removable but Blik Re-Stik decals are re-positionable, so you can use then over and over. Original Blik is made from a very thin vinyl film, once removed from the wall, the decals cannot be reused. The beauty of Original Blik is that people will think that you spent hours painting your design when in reality it took only minutes to apply. Blik Re-Stik is made from a slightly thicker material with a very low tack adhesive backing that lets you remove and move the decals again and again. You can even take the decals with you when you move as long as you save the white paper backing they come on. Keep the adhesive backing free of dust, fibers or dirt to extend the Re-Stik life span.

    Will blik work on walls?

    No, it depends on the texture. Smooth surfaces like drywall are the best. If your wall is rough, bumpy or newly painted, Blik may not adhere properly. Wipe your walls down with a dry cloth to remove any dust or those cobwebs hanging out in the corner.

    Will blik adhere to All paints?

    No, it depends on the texture. Smooth surfaces like drywall are the best. If your wall is rough, bumpy or newly painted, Blik may not adhere properly. Wipe your walls down with a dry cloth to remove any dust or those cobwebs hanging out in the corner.

    Will blik adhere to textured surfaces?

    Smooth surfaces are best. Even lightly textured surfaces such as orange peel texture can prevent the decals from adhering. If your walls are slightly textured, we recommend the Blik Re-Stik line of movable graphics.

    Is Blik easy to remove? If so, How?

    Removal is easy. Peel up an edge with your fingernail and slowly peel the decal off the wall. If you've applied Blik to a less porous surface like glass, we recommend that you use a hairdryer (set on a low heat) to warm the decal, this releases the adhesive and makes it easier to peel off.

    Will Blik leave a residue when removed? Or take off the paint?

    No, Blik won't leave any goo on your wall when removed. Since we cannot guarantee the condition of all wall surfaces, we cannot say across the board that some paint flecking will not occur. You may notice paint flecks on the back of the decals when removed and some minor paint touch up's may be required.
